Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

The 'your brain will adjust to the (bad) sound' is only true for novices..

But that is enough reason for me to despise the endless claims about break in.
It may be true...
But it may also just be a steaming pile!
So I would advise anyone who gets the run around about break in (if they do not like a component's sound) to be VERY suspicious.
And never let some seller/ salesperson talk you into hanging on to some POS while they are spouting about break in.

Really the ideal item would 'sound pretty good' out of the box. Then, as break in proceeded the sound would improve to 'stunning'.

Stuff which still sound like crap after 48 hours IS CRAP. PERIOD.
